YMMV: The Simpsons S 9 E 1 The City Of New York Vs Homer Simpson
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment / Harsher in Hindsight: Thanks to the 9/11 attacks, this episode (which mostly takes place around the World Trade Center and includes a line about Tower 1 containing jerks) is not that fun to watch (though most people have claimed it was like that already thanks to Homer being a Jerkass in this episode). Even the writers on the DVD commentary acknowledge that watching this in the post-9/11 world is depressing.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: On the flipside, the Betty Ford Clinic musical about how celebrities go to rehab instead of jail for their erratic, criminal behavior is still relevant today, thanks to the likes of Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Amanda Bynes, Tara Reid, Paris Hilton, and others getting the same treatment. (In fact, the main character of the musical even looks a little like Charlie Sheen.)
